I have read a number of reviews about the reserve and I feel I need to weigh in. My wife and I, being huge lacrosse fans, (played since the early 70's) have come many times to the ILA (Iroquois Lacrosse Arena) to watch and support the Six Nations teams. This year, incidentally, the Arrows, Rebels and Chiefs all won their... More

Drove throught this part of Ontario and when we visited we noticed numerous rustic looking huts selling cigarettes. I was always under the impression that the Six Nations peoplw were proud of their culture but the numerous huts selling cigarettes certainly gave me a different impression of this area.

I have been to Six Nations many times for various reasons, Pow wow, shopping, day excursions and have always enjoyed ourselves. Went to the burger barn for a b-day party and the food was simply amazing, good prices, good quality,big portions and the service was friendly. If you go make sure you know where you are going....have a map because... More

To understand the First Nations, you have to visit them! You will meet a great group of people trying to make their way in a complex society. Try attending summer gathering or just go shopping and talk to the people.

Just a little over the top in pseudo-culture, I'm sad to say. Around here we are just about topped out on native 'culture' that includes blockades, sitdowns, hunger strikes and vans on fire pushed off bridges.

We often forget how rich our neighbours culture can be. Six Nations folks embody all that is good and pure about Canada. Humility, respect for the land and hospitality. Check it out. Fun and rare experience.
